>> i wanted to acknowledge also that a number of project sponsors are here as well that can answer questions if we have any. ms. kim i'll mention i see jonathan and rick r riccardo i think those are the engineers and the staff that can answer questions. let's open this up for public comment. i have two cards (calling names) from the merry kidney triangle and aaron good man >> hi, good morning. i'm bringing to our attention a traffic calming measure that will be beneficial for 3 streets. a permanent radar panel similar to the 1 on slope boulevard and
11:22 pm
masonic and those are in areas that have high traffic accidents are pedestrian deaths. al mean boulevard near st. charles and brotherhood ease also sunset boulevard between ocean. and there are in 3 different districts but i believe those 3 locates will be beneficial for cars traveling in those corridors. they're heavyly used corridor and traffic flows well beyond the speed limits. i have a comment on the traffic study but i'll wait. thank you very much >> thank you for those great suggestions. mr. goodman >> again day i want to show you on the overhead if you can
11:23 pm
switch to the overhead. this is the type of problem we have board boulevards and as well as transit planning so that was sunset boulevard and unfortunately, the little girl was killed going across the boulevard. if you look at the map on the side you have the judy a 3 schools and on the map further i don't know if it's showing up properly but there's 3 or 2 different crossings the judy district attorney and the slow boulevard area. those things have to be looked at all the kids in those areas and the high-speed traffic we need to study the whole length
11:24 pm
of the boulevard and the area on ocean boulevard we have the crossing guard their tacked to the highlight there looks like randolph and that's part of the congestion problem when development occurs without the transit stuff studied without properly in advance. thank you >> thank you, mr. goodman anyone else? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> good morning supervisor mar i want to address our comment about how much target is putting in for the signal work. and we have our gentleman here who says its approximately 4 hundred thousand.
11:25 pm
would the traffic light near masonic and gary bus it's on ann assistant district attorney and masonic. and that's an area that enter seconds 1, 2, and 5 very closely alcohol but it's good that target is that troin i attributing. can we move this forward >> planning code guidelines this is an informational item. >> we have chad for the report. >> good morning supervisor mar. i'm with the ta i'll be presenting on item 7 with a neighborhood transportation improvement program a planning
11:26 pm
section we're representing the draft. we've referred to this throughout the presentation. why develop and propose something like that? sf has a response as part of the san francisco transmission plan on socioin terms of where we build and pedestrian bike projects and improvements. also a respond from the public and the board as part of the constituent received. finally, it's a respond inform recommendation in the san francisco recommendation plans as far as calling out the need to strengthen pipeline in san francisco. so we talked about we presented we included in the agenda in december a little memo on end
11:27 pm
tips it will be focusing on planning and we have conversations about the planning. so we're proposing using the $100,000 for prop k and that's $1.1 million into planning projects over the next 5 years >> i want to thank supervisor avalos and tilly for this equitable way of looking at the districts needs but i think this helps us and our residents that the ta is looking at the specific needs of our districts so thank you. >> chimney in as well. i do really appreciate staff moving on this idea and something i brought forward as a need in district 11 we have real sluggish way of getting
11:28 pm
pedestrian projects moving and bike projects the need is really, really great. i think one of the beneficial things we can talk about for our district is how to get more resident involved in the sdooip and planning process this program can help with that >> okay right into my next slide. one it's a great opportunity to increase community engagement in san francisco. and the second reason it creates a project pipeline of neighborhood scale projects in san francisco neighborhood. that means the size of the project and the cost those are things that effects neighborhoods and two integral parts one is identifying priority tiger's recommendations we should be focusing our resources on and the second thing we want to make sure we're
11:29 pm
identifying potential funding timelines. those projects right off the bat. so those are addressing the issues and again, this is speaking to what we learned in the san francisco transportation project and reducing issues and helping neighborhoods. so this is the overall process we are going envisioning and we move from needs to solutions to recommendations and implementing plans that can be picked up and have strong plans to be implemented rather than having the ideas. the total amount proposed 1 point plus million we think this will have an applying impact on
11:30 pm
the neighborhood level. and because of the amount leveraged this made it to the steps in all cases we want to insure there's a clear path forward or have clear steps toward project implementation. so what do we mean by planning efforts this is a bit of a menu of ideas we've come up with. at the end of the day those needs will be at a later date. those are the projects we've had in san francisco you're probably aware of it can be district wide and a part from geographic one is a district wide save route to school or biking or
